Course summary

Course description

Our three-year MSc (Clin) Periodontology course focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. You will learn the skills needed to critically evaluate and solve problems relating to periodontology.

Your research skills will also be developed as you learn how to design research projects, collect data, conduct simple analyses and interpret the results.

These projects may be within areas such as genetics, microbiology or biomaterials.

Your research will benefit from our links with the Cochrane Oral Health Group and the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for the Treatment of Cranio-Facial Anomalies.

Our course is also designed to prepare you to become a Member in Restorative Dentistry through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.


The course aims to provide you with:

  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to diagnosis and treatment of periodontics and related procedures;
  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable critical evaluation and problem solving for periodontal problems to allow independent practice;
  • knowledge relating to the contemporary practise of periodontics (including an appreciation of an interdisciplinary approach to comprehensive patient care), to allow communication with both specialist and non-specialist audiences;
  • competence in the design and interpretation of original clinical research at the forefront of current dental research;
  • the knowledge and experience to plan, implement and complete a research project showing initiative and personal responsibility;
  • the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare you for advanced clinical practice in periodontics;
  • a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues involved in the scientific basis of periodontology.

Career opportunities

Most of our graduates return to their place of employment after completing the course.

A smaller number go on to pursue further academic training and undertake higher research degrees (eg MPhil or PhD programmes).
